I have in my /etc/profile file the following (I use bash):
export LINGUAS="sv fr"
KDE (3.2.1) is built to support these languages but somehow, kdevelop 3.0.x only supports english
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add export LINGUAS="sv fr" to profile.
2. logout, login (just to be sure..). I use bash
3. emerge kdevelop
4. Run KDE in French or Swedish.
5. Start Kdevelop and check the language used. In my case it is English all the time...
Kdevelop menus are in English instead of French or Swedish as the rest of the
Kdevelop should use the session language (French or Swedish), instead of English.
The translations for kdevelop are supplied in the kde-i18n packages. Since English is my native language, i'm not sure how you go about telling kdevelop to use them. You should try the kdevelop mailinglist and see if they can help you get it working.
Hello. Thanks for your answer.
Considering that I built kdevelop after kde-i18n, this might explain why I don't have the kdevelop translations. I will rebuild kde-18n to see if it makes some difference.
I don't really get the logic though.
If one considers KDE as a whole, I can understand that the translation of KDE are in kde-i18n, a package of its own.
However, applications like kdevelop, quanta and others should come with their own translations which should be installed with the applications, using the 'LINGUAS' environment variable.
In my opinion, there is a major logical flaw there...
Apps like kdevelop and quanta are integral to KDE, so the translations are maintained all in one spot (kde-i18n).

KDE could need more translators
